jones-cormier-sportscenterThe UFC has stripped UFC light heavyweight champion Jon Jones of his title and suspended him indefinitely. UFC President Dana White made the announcement tonight on FOX Sports 1:

Jones was set to defend his title against Anthony Johnson in the  UFC 187 main event. However, Daniel Cormier will replace Jones at UFC 187 and fight Anthony Johnson for the vacated title. Cormier fought Jones in January losing a competitive unanimous decision. Cormier was slated to face Ryan Bader at a UFC Fight Night event in June, but it looks like Bader will be facing a new opponent that will be named later.

Jon Jones took to his Twitter account to give his first comment since the Sunday incident:

Indeed Jon…indeed.
